It is really tragic that hundreds of dogs fall prey to this stupid incident when their owners leave them behind in a car. The owners do not even have an idea how hot can the car get and that it is extremely dangerous for the dog inside. They can suffocate to death so great care must be taken and if you see a dog trapped in a hot car, try doing the things given below.
Gather the necessary info such as the registration number of the car and it is better to take a picture of the license plate of the car with your smartphone.
Keep calm and notify other people and rush to a building nearby and inform the manager. Time is of the essence here because the dogs can suffer brain damage within just a minute or so.
Sometimes it is better to go to the backside of the car to watch the dog and do not leave your place.
When the owner arrives to their car, it is better to educate them about this and let them know how hot the car is.
If you have tried everything and the owner cannot be found, then it is better to call for help and dial 911 immediately.
hen Matt Hickey retired as a Marietta, OH, police officer, he had one wish: for his K-9 companion Ajax to come home with him.
After serving together for four years, the two were like family (much like Officer Ryan Davis, who was distraught when his pooch was killed in the line of duty).
Unfortunately, while Officer Hickey was due for retirement (he served on the force for more than 30 years), Ajax had some more time to go. The pooch was to be auctioned off to a complete stranger because of state law.
'Officer Hickey came in when he retired and wanted to buy the dog right then, but we couldn't do it," Marietta Mayor Joe Matthew told NBC News. 'It's impossible. I would have loved to, but the state law won't allow us."
Hickey made his dismay public and the community agreed. Strangers began donating to a GoFundMe page set up to keep Hickey and Ajax together. It raised over $70,000.
And then something incredible happened
